The following are the major differences between SVT-A and SVT-V series wireless vibration & temperature sensors.
- SVT-A series sensors send out raw acceleration data; while SVT-V series sensors send out calculated result including velocity RMS, acceleration RMS. As a result, SVT-A sensors allow for FFT analysis, filtering, and other advanced vibration analysis, while SVT-V sensors will not have this capability. SVT-V sensors can be used by both technicians without much vibration analysis experiences, or by vibration experts for continuous monitoring.
- When SVT-A series sensors take data continuously, due to the large amount of data transferred, their battery will be drained much faster than SVT-V series sensors. SVT-V series sensors are designed to monitor in real time (taking data continuously in the most energy-efficient way). For critical assets, SVT-V series sensors are essential for immediate response to detect accidents.
- In the same gateway, only one SVT-A sensor group can take data at a time; while SVT-V sensors in multiple groups are taking data in parallel
- An SVT-A sensor can only send data to one gateway at a time; while an SVT-V sensor can send data to multiple gateways at the same time
- SVT-A series sensors take data manually, with timer or remote MQTT control; SVT-V series sensors automatically take data continuously and send data to the gateways.
The following are the common properties of SVT-A and SVT-V series wireless vibration & temperature sensors.
- Both sensors measure precision temperature with 0.01 degree resolution
- Both sensors can measure velocity RMS and acceleration RMS
- Both sensors can use the single M6 screw case, or double-screw case
- Both sensors use the same electrical design and hardware, but SVT-A and SVT-V sensors use different firmware
- Both sensors are used widely by IOT software companies, AI companies or vibration analysts for predictive maintenance purpose.
